Top Ten Best Books I Read In 2015

As always, Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish.

Narrowing down my favourite books of the year is next to impossible. In order to do so, I went to Goodreads and these 13 books are the only books to receive the coveted 5 star rating from me this year.

All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven - This book killed me and broke my heart.

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah - If you like historical fiction, this HAS to be on your list. It was fantastic!

I'll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios - I loved this one. It felt very authentic and real.

The Lost Girls: Three Friends. Four Continents. One Unconventional Detour Around the World by Jennifer Baggett, Holly C. Corbett, and Amanda Pressner - This made me want to quit my job and travel even more than I already do.

Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen - I was starting to wonder if I was outgrowing Dessen, but after this book, I definitely think I'm not.

Before The Storm and Secrets She Left Behind by Diane Chamberlain - Such a fun duology with an awesome main character.

The Seven Sisters by Lucinda Riley - Another historical fiction, but this one takes place in the past and present. Can't wait to read the rest!

The Blue by Lucy Clarke - Clarke's books have the best settings and always make me long to travel. This one had a bit of a mystery, too.

Those Girls by Chevy Stevens - If you're looking for a thrilling mystery, this is the book you want.

Always The Bridesmaid by Lindsey Kelk - Kelk is hilarious and this one had me laughing out loud.

Me Before You by JoJo Moyes - Another one that broke my heart into a million pieces.

Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things by Jenny Lawson - Lawson is a brilliant advocate for mental illness, but she is also hilarious.


  1. I read The Lost Girls a summer or two ago and had the same feeling! I wanted to quit my job, sell my house and car, and take off. I envied those girls...

    The Nightingale has been lingering on my TBR list for most of 2015. I need to go ahead and just dive in!

    1. You won't be sorry if you read The Nigthingale. It's so good!

  2. I've got I'll Meet You There on my TBR! I've seen it on a lot of people's lists lately and it's only made me more excited to read it :) Great list!

  3. Nice list of books in your post this week!!

  4. I just started hearing thigs recently about The Nightingale and I am definitely planning on reading that soon. I also really love The Bloggess but am sad to say I haven't yet gotten to Let's Pretend this Never Happened though I own it in audio and hope to get to it soon before moving onto Furiously Happy. She is so great at mixing humor with pretty serious subject matter.

    1. The Nightingale is absolutely beautiful, but also very sad.
